Fire Hydrant Collage

Mary at Little Red House is hosting Mosaic Monday. This is my second mosaic. Click the link to go to here site and look at all the other mosaics. Thanks for hosting, Mary.




I work in downtown Harrisburg, PA. During my lunch hour, I sometimes go for a walk. Artists are currently painting the fire hydrants. I enjoy looking seeing all the pretty and whimsical hydrants. I think my favorite is the puppy. Look at that cute black nose.

Thank you for the kind comment you left for me on my blog. Your mosaic is very fun. I love it. In response to your question. "How do you make the picture enlarge when you click on it?" I'm not sure. It just works that way for me. I am just starting with mosaic, too.

I still think those fire hydrants are the cutest thing I've ever seen. Such fun. I just wanted to let you know that the next "Cloche Party" is scheduled for Sept. 11th for the Fall season. Grab the button on my sidebar to remind you and to let your friends know. See you there. Hugs, Marty

My daughter is doing an internship in downtown Harrisburg and told me about the fire hydrants but I didn't get any photos so this is a real treat for me. Thanks!!! They are really cute.
